Deemed consent one step closer

Organ donation and PSC

An opt-out system for organ donation could soon become law

 

An opt-out system for organ donation could soon become law in England. The Organ Donation (Deemed Consent) Bill had no changes made today during its committee stage in the House of Lords.

The legislation will be called Max’s and Keira’s Law, after heart recipient Max Johnson and his donor, Keira Ball.

This welcome news brings new hope for the 389 people currently waiting for a liver transplant. You can read more about the views of PSC Support on the importance of organ donation.
